I'm not feeling too well. My stomach is just not right. Maybe I have a touch of something. I've been taking it easy all day. Haven't had anything to eat. Just broth and coke to drink.
I think I need to treat myself a little gentler.
For example, while the above photo may not exactly look like the counter in a spa, it is my own little home version of relaxing indulgence. I have my little bottle of lavender bath, my insulated glass of ice water, a scented candle, and reading material. Add a tub of hot water and I have, right in my own home, the means to unwind and take some peaceful minutes for myself.
I don't have a jacuzzi. I don't need a jacuzzi. A tub that is a little deeper would be nice. But I'm happy with what I have and a hot lavender bath for twenty minutes while reading things that interest me is sometimes just what I need.
I have learned the hard way in my life that it just doesn't pay to never fill the pitcher from which is poured all that I do for my family and others. It's important.
Here's wishing you all a wonderful weekend and Valentine's Day!
